Westbank man wins $1M jackpot

Another lottery player from the Okanagan is walking away a millionaire.

Werner Weiss from Westbank was the big winner in the $1 million dollar Maxmillions draw on January 27.

He says at first he thought he'd be taking home 10-grand, before realizing his prize had a couple more zeros.

Weiss also says he'll put money towards retiring, and will help out others when he can.

The winning ticket was bought at the Sheffield's Express, inside the Orchard Park mall.
